Assertiveness, Conflict, and Confidence at Work

The difference between being assertive and aggressive, is that when you are aggressive you adopt an ‘I win – you lose’ mentality, to achieve what you want. When you display assertive behaviour you deal with issues, instead of emotions, which is the most effective way to ask for what you want.
